Abstract:

Chylothorax following childbirth is a rare entity, with only 3 cases described in the literature. We are reporting the case of a 31 years-old Caucasian woman who developed a chylothorax following childbirth, for which interventional radiology was the only successful treatment, after failure of conservative treatments. Regarding the few published cases and our, it seems that interventional treatment should be proposed as soon as postpartum chylothorax is diagnosed. It seems that interventional radiology, because of its small morbidity, should be considered first.
